REACTIVE Reporting from Iran

Talk Tuesday 30th June, 2009

As the relationship between the West and Iran continues to deteriorate, the Frontline Club is hosting a special event with journalists recently back from the capital Tehran to discuss the elections and the protests that followed.
Prevented from reporting on the streets, journalists were allowed only to work only from their offices, conducting telephone interviews and monitoring official sources such as state television.
Hear journalists discuss the impact of the restrictions on their work, the crucial role of new media and citizen journalists as well as the increasing hostility of the Irania government towards the British government and the BBC..
